Re the one ( Richard David Miles) in Poole that may have been mentioned, google throws up that he is a member of the Christian fellowship there, checked that out and doubt it is the right one, as he is giving a sermon and mentions his wife of 25 years.

When were they born? Not seeing a birth for a Terrance Pearson with that spelling.

Yes they are showing on for 2002-2003 but you need units to look at the address. Tried BT online phonebook but not seeing a possible tel nos./address for Brighton

Have PM,d a poss for Poole for Richard may not be him but worth a call.

Just wanted to add that they were partners. I know that back some years ago my brother was suffering with an illness so even took it upon myself to look under deaths :-( but i never found anything there either. Something is telling me Poole or Bournemouth but i don't know why, just a thought i suppose. I've always trusted my instincts in the past and they have proven to be 99.9 % right.

Point taken, Penny, Not finding either of them after 2003 ---the info I sent Julie was not for her brother, Anyone any more ideas ?

Friends tend to move independently, partners tend to move together, if Terrence and Richard were couple then there would be a point in looking for Terrence now.

Hi Julie,

Welcome to GR and the boards.

I have sent you a PM (Personal Message---look on top toolbar under "Messages" )
with address from
It may not be your brother, but worth a try.

Penny, not sure of the relevance of your question "Were they friends or partners? "

Best wishes

Will he want to be found?
Do you have any other family members with whom he could have stayed in touch? Asked them?

Basically, you need to look on, see if he's listed. You will nee to buy some credits to see the result.

Does his friend Terrence know where he went. or did he go too?
Were they friends or partners?

I last saw Richard David Miles (my brother) in 1994. At the time he was living in St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex. I've moved around a fair bit and evidently we lost touch. I heard recently that he lived in the Brighton area from 2002-2003 i was given an address but unfortunately when i moved i mislaid it. I have been endlessly searching over the past few months with no joy whatsoever. My brother was living with his friend in Brighton, his name is Terrance B Pearson. I would be grateful if anyone could help me out. Thank you in anticipation... Julie Miles :-)
